Alice Feurtey

Post-doctoral researcher in Eva Stukenbrock’s team at the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Biology (Plön, Germany)

Alice Feurtey is currently a post-doctoral researcher in Bruce McDonald’s team at the ETH Zurich, and working in collaboration with Daniel Croll from the Neuchâtel University. She is interested in host-pathogen coevolution, pathogen adaptation, and evolutionary genomics. She is mainly involved in projects investigating the evolution of Zymoseptoria tritici, but is also interested in the population genomics of other plant pathogens. She started her scientific career at Paris Sud University (Paris, France) with Tatiana Giraud, with whom she studied gene flow in apple trees and plant-pathogen co-evolution in wild environments, and also worked as a post-doctoral researcher in Eva Stukenbrock’s team at the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Biology (Plön, Germany).
